Anti Valentines Day Contest - v 2.0

In some recent Blog Stalkings of mine, I found a contest that really piqued my interest. It is the Anti-Valentines Day Contest - v 2.0 . It sounded like fun! In a morbid sort of way. And I do have a somewhat morbid sense of humor at times. So I thought and thought and this is what I came up with...


Here's a close-up of the glass of Absinthe with the skewered heart. The Absinthe in the glass is actually acrylic resin that I have tinted green. The heart is paper mache and which has been skewered with a cocktail sword.


For those out there that do not know what Absinthe is, it is an anise flavored, highly alcoholic liquor that is distilled from wormwood. It was once illegal in the U.S. because it was thought to have psychoactive properties.

Keep your fingers crossed for me......
